About Bucklesham

Bucklesham is a small village near the tranquil Mill River, recorded in Domesday as "Buclesham" or "Bukelesham". Aside from the pub and the village school, it has few facilities.

When the village sign was re-painted late-2016/early-2017, it was just painted black, rather than reproducing its older, more colourful look.

The hall is situated on a prehistoric settlement and burial site.

In 1900 Captain Earnest George Prettyman was listed as MP and lord of the manors of Tyrrells-Feltwell-cum-Foxhall and principal landowner.

Starfish and Starfish/QL bombing decoy sites were operated in the south-west of the parish (at TM 238 410 and TM 242 415) to deflect enemy bombing from Ipswich and the LNER marshalling yard. See here, and here for more information.
